UPDATE from May 13th 2013 : First walkthrough
With two books released in France by HERSCHER books and Volume 1 released in the United States by Schiffer Books, Tattoisme has quickly emerged as the reference book for those devoted to the tattoo world. This is one of the first ever books that features tattoo artists as multidisciplinary artists. Featured in numerous press releases and in the mainstream press, the success of Tattoisme has far succeeded the simple medium of tattoo. In addition to its critical and commercial success, Tattooisme has also been selected by Le Figaro to be part of the '100 new words of 2012' in the 'Special French Language' issue.
